Taxonomy extra:
Closeup of flowering tops. There's French and Russian tarragon. The French is far better, but can't take harsh winters, and doesn't make seeds. The Russian is far larger, and easy to grow even up here in the far north, but doesn't have the real taste. Kew Garden, London, UK. Planted. 1995-07-01.
